The United States of Visual States is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Fernando Álvarez de Toledo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.089 billion Hackers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of JavaCity. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient White Hatted economy, worth a remarkable 5,279 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 328,123 bitcoins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,071,532 per year while the poor average 2,975, a ratio of 1,032 to 1.

Mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of pythons and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, several inches are being added to first class seating, and Fernando Álvarez de Toledo has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Visual States's national animal is the python, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Visual States is ranked 266,267th in the world and 3rd in Crassia for Smartest Citizens, with 0.82 quips per hour.
